Welcome and thank you to this wonderful team of students.
Leah Haberman: Student Leadership Board Chair
I’m so excited to help the student leaders here achieve their goals of planning amazing and meaningful programs, getting new people in the building, and having Hillel be an inclusive, exciting, and engaging space.
Evelyn Fleischer: Social Justice Committee Chair
I hope everyone is just as excited as I am to spread some Tikkun Olam! If you’re passionate about helping others and repairing the world one act of kindness at a time then come talk to me! Every and all ideas are welcome to come my way!
Ari Geary-Teeter: Shabbat Committee Chair
I will strive to create fun, lively, and relaxing Shabbats every Friday evening, rain or overcast. I really want to make Shabbat an inclusive space for every student and hope to have quite a variety of themes and cuisines. I’m looking for committee members who share these values and can come to meetings prepared with ideas of their own. Particularly people who aren’t especially active in Hillel are encouraged to be part of my committee to get some outside voices interested in making Hillel work for them. Anyone can be a part of this decision-making process, let’s make this a great year for the Sabbath!
Nicole Pinkus: Jewish Life and Learning Committee Chair
I am thrilled for the opportunity to represent Hillel in creating all things Jewish and fun! During this school year, we will collectively engage in Jewish content – everything from the books of the Torah to exploring our personal values. We will learn from one another, as well as our amazing Rabbi Dana, in engaging and accepting open spaces where all thoughts, opinions, and commentary are welcomed. From speakers in Hillel to havdallah in the beautiful, Seattle outdoors, I am determined to enriching your life with Jewish knowledge and appreciation. Are YOU passionate about Jewish learning? Join the Jewish Life and Learning Board and you can! Please message me with any interest, questions, or comments!
Danielle Hammer: Community Building Committee Chair
I am so excited to engage Hillel regulars and newcomers alike into the fabulous Hillel community through hosting innovative social events that attract a diverse and spirited group of students. I also look forward to implementing a new mentorship program in order to foster connection and learning between students of different backgrounds and in various stages of their college careers. I am excited to welcome members on my committee who care about interpersonal connection and seize opportunities to engage people in conversation about Hillel’s special attributes and offerings.
Tamar Leveson: Israel Committee Chair
I’m super excited to be serving as this year’s Israel Committee Chair after a full year as Hillel’s Israel intern. I’m very passionate about getting people excited about Israel and Israeli culture. Whether you’re passionate about Israeli film, or the U.S.-Israel Relationship, there is a place for you on my committee! If you have any questions feel free to message me on Facebook at any time, I’m a night owl so I’ll answer you at obscene hours of the day.
Stormy Allen: Inclusion Committee Co-Chair
I’m extremely excited to be the co-chair for the Inclusion Committee this school year! From those who frequent Hillel UW to students who haven’t had the chance to visit, I’m hoping to create an inclusive environment where Hillel can feel like a home away from home for those looking for a Jewish space, a chance to engage in more interfaith events, or just to hang out in our café after class! I’d love to hear any ideas and suggestions so don’t hesitate to reach out!
Claire Butwinick: Inclusion Committee Co-Chair
I am looking forward to organizing fun events that will get new faces into the building and make everyone feel welcomed at Hillel. I am excited to work with committee members who are enthusiastic, inviting and who want to share their diverse interests and passions with the Hillel community! 😊 Can’t wait to meet all of you!
